Has anyone used a Doula or Midwife in Pueblo? I am looking for recommendations!
I don't know how long you have lived here or your birth situation or history but I have had horrible luck with almost all doctors and hospitals here, I can't wait to move away.
Thanks for trying! I think I am going to try to contact Sharron again. I'm not sure if I'll be able to have a homebirth since I had gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy. I work full time so going to the springs for care is not a good option for me. I am hoping that I can either find a willing midwife or a decent OB and a Doula.
I had the BEST EVER CNM with my last baby in Wyoming. I believe she's a clinical instructor at the University of Colorado Hospital now.
I know this is an older thread, but Jan Eklund is a great midwife and located in South Colorado Springs, but serves Pueblo. There is also Emily Likens that serves the Pueblo area. I would recommend either of them.
Kim Littau is also a FANTASTIC doula in CS but will come to Pueblo. Her number is (719) 321-0247
Emily Likens did leave from what I heard. I wonder if she is talking about Gina? She also left though. We are moving to Westcliffe soon I hope and I am wondering if there is a midwife there... I want more children but I don't want to go to a hospital if I don't have to. I guess I could just walk in pushing if I really have to go that way.
Anyone still need info on midwives/doulas in Pueblo?
Probably some other CS midwives would go down there too, check http://www.coloradomidwives.org/find-a-midwife and do a google search.
Susie Trujillo is in Canon City but I heard she is on sabbatical right now.
